Nipple Reduction

What is Nipple/Areola Reduction?

The beauty of the breasts comes in part from symmetrical, well-shaped, and proportional nipples and areolas. The appearance of these features can make a big difference in how satisfied you are with the way you look. However, nipples and areolas that are overly large can:

  • Limit the styles of clothing that you can wear.
  • Restrict the activities in which you can participate.
  • Cause irritation or sensitivity.

Dr. Schwartz conducts nipple reduction/areola reduction procedures for Dallas patients to resolve these issues and help achieve their personal aesthetic goals. He leverages his years of experience as a board-certified plastic surgeon and his eye for artistic detail to provide natural-looking, graceful, and attractive change.

Ideal Candidates of Nipple Reduction

Dallas patients can have nipple/areola reduction as a standalone procedure or in combination with another surgery, such as breast augmentation, lift, or reduction. Some problems that patients choose to address with nipple/areola reduction are:

  • Areolas that are wide, stretched, prominent, or irregularly shaped
  • Areolas that take up a significant portion of the breast tissue
  • Areolas or nipples that are not symmetrical
  • Areolas that are excessively dark (often after pregnancy)
  • Nipples that are long, protruding, droopy, or inverted

While most of Dr. Schwartz’s patients that receive nipple/areola reduction are women, men may also opt to have the procedure. The surgery can provide male patients with a more masculine and sculpted chest.

Dr. Schwartz assesses whether a breast lift by itself can achieve your best results or if both procedures are needed to reach your overall desired look.

Nipple Reduction Surgical Technique

Dr. Schwartz will conduct a comprehensive consultation and examination as part of your treatment. He will learn your goals, discuss the possibilities with nipple reduction/areola reduction, and determine a surgical approach based on your vision for success. Dr. Schwartz prioritizes the patient relationship as well as your safety and comfort. In his care, you can expect an excellent experience and an attractive, natural-looking outcome.

In an areola reduction, Dr. Schwartz removes excess tissue from the areolas to revise their shape and size. The surgery may also raise the nipples higher on the breasts. As a result, patients often benefit from a mini-breast lift and a more youthful appearance.

With nipple reduction surgery, Dr. Schwartz will reduce the length and/or diameter of the nipples. This will make the nipples look prettier and less protruding. It can also reduce discomfort when wearing certain clothing styles.

With both procedures, Dr. Schwartz will conduct the surgery in such a way that incisions should be unobtrusive and resulting scars should fade naturally over time.

What to Expect After Nipple Reduction

Patients have nipple reduction and areola reduction surgeries on an outpatient basis. As you heal from your procedure, you may notice:

  • Mild swelling or discomfort for a few days. Most patients manage these concerns with pain medication.
  • Nipple tenderness. This is usually due to temporary nerve irritation. Dr. Schwartz and his staff can provide guidance to help resolve sensitivity.

If the only procedure you have is nipple reduction/areola reduction, you may be able to return to normal activities the following day. Dr. Schwartz will recommend that you avoid rigorous activity, such as exercise, for one week. He may provide a different timeline for recovery if you also have a procedure such as a breast augmentation or reduction.

Note that both nipple and areola reduction carry some risk of losing nipple sensation. While this is not a problem for most patients, Dr. Schwartz typically advises women to be finished with breastfeeding before having the surgery.

The benefits of your nipple reduction/areola reduction should be immediate and permanent. Once you’ve fully recovered, you should be able to enjoy more aesthetically pleasing features, greater freedom in daily activities, and improved comfort.
